["For those people that won't eat any cereal that doesn't turn the milk blue. Or if the pink milk of Pink Panther Flakes isn't you, try these very smurfy breakfast treats. The perfect cereal to eat while you sit back and watch Saturday morning cartoons. At least when Saturday morning cartoons existed. Introduced by Post, breakfast was never been the same after The Smurfs had their very own cereal. Because Post already had success with turning the Flintstones into a cereal, the Smurfs was the next logical step. Smurf-Berry Crunch was released in 1983 and was later reformated and renamed Smurf Magic Berries around 1988 (allegedly Smurf-Berry Crunch turned poop weird colors and parents got freaked out). The former was red and blue colored corn puffs, while the latter had yellow cornpuffs and added marshmallow stars instead of "smurfberries." Just look how much Papa Smurf enjoys eating a big bowl of Smurf-Berry Crunch cereal. Maybe Gargamel should have tried this stuff instead of attempting (and failing) to eat the Smurfs all the time."]
2.POSTOPOLIS! Los Angeles. Here's an event schedule for the ol' Postopolis, which will feature lots of discussion here in this West Coast bastion of hedonism.
["On the occasion of Los Angeles Art Weekend, Storefront for Art and Architecture and ForYourArt are pleased to announce Postopolis! LA, a live five-day event of near-continuous conversation about architecture, art, urbanism, landscape, and design to be held in Los Angeles from 31 March to 4 April 2009. Six bloggers, from five different cities around the world, will host a series of discussions, interviews, slideshows, panels, talks, and presentations, fusing the informal energy and interdisciplinary approach of the architectural blogosphere with the immediacy of face-to-face interaction. "]
3.Earth Hour 2009. The Boston Globe has a cool collection of pictures that allow you to see how various world landmarks looked before and after turning off their non-essential lights for Earth Hour.
["A combination of handout pictures shows a view of the Taipei 101 building before and after (L-R) Earth Hour in Taipei March 28, 2009. More than 80 countries have signed up for Earth Hour on Saturday in which homes, office towers and landmarks will turn off their lights from 8.30 pm local time to raise awareness about climate change and the threat from rising greenhouse gas emissions."]
4.Jumpman. OK. I am pretty much obsessed with this, even if it irritates the hell out of me.
["Old-school puzzle platforming with some twists"]
5. Earlier today, I was feeling very lazy, but I knew I wanted some cinnamon toast. "How does one make cinnamon toast?" I wondered aloud. "Google will know." And, indeed, it did. It also knew how to make just plain toast, so, if you're wondering ...
["5. Insert bread into slots of the toaster. Some toasters have more than two slots for many pieces of toast.
6. Push down the toaster plunger to turn it on.
7. Wearing an oven mitt, carefully remove the hot toast from the toaster after it pops up."]
